Reinstalling fixes the issue obviously, but its a lot of data to re-download. You can also reinstall, but copy over your patch files from the old client. You can also attempt to repair the issue with your client manually. The latter two methods are basically doing the same thing, just merging your patch download data with a working copy of the missing file.

If you could, go to this thread and follow the instructions to post a copy of your client on that thread; They need a "broken" install to help them track down this issue. You may want to make a copy of your League of Legends.app file first, and then follow his instructions on that copy; Otherwise you're going to be forced to reinstall the game.

To fix it manually:
1) Open a new Finder window, navigate to your Applications folder, and find League of Legends.app
2) Right click, Show Package Contents
3) Double click on Contents, then LOL, then RADS, then system.
4) Keep this window open for a bit.

5) Re-download the League Of Legends NA.dmg install file.
6) Open the file. A window will appear with a picture of Ryze, a League of Legends.app file, and a shortcut to your Applications folder.
7) Right click on League of Legends.app, Show Package Contents.
8) Double click on Contents, then LOL, then RADS, then system.
9) There's a file in here called UserKernel.app, and you want copy it to the other window you have open. Do this by clicking and dragging the file, then dropping it into the other window.
10) Verify that the UserKernel.app file now exists in the first window, the one showing the contents of your patched client.
11) Assuming everything is ok, close the first Finder window, then switch back to the second window, the one showing the contents of the install file.
12) Hit cmd+e to eject the disk image.

13) Open a new Finder window, navigate to your Applications folder, and open the game. It should now run.


Thank you so much I've been looking for a solution for a while now it worked, thanks again.

Hi. I tried the above solution about replacing that one file, but it did not work for me.

I almost gave up but I created a new account (a mac account), and 1st time it still had same problem, but when I created it again for the 2nd time, it worked! - I tried this because I noticed that each time I created a new user account before, the mac is different each time! I don't know what causes the difference, but creating a new user account for the 2nd time worked for me. I don't have a lot of files on my macbook air so it's easy for me. For other people maybe just have that new account as a strictly lol account.

I followed the exact same steps but had to replace the "Play League of Legends" file. I tried the UserKernel.app first and it didn't change anything, but I did do both, so if just one doesn't work maybe try both.
